Jonathan Tuckey Design is one of the UK’s leading advocates for remodelling and radically transforming old buildings for modern uses. The practice does this in ways that reveal what buildings from different eras mean to us today. With an office in London and Andermatt, Switzerland, Jonathan Tuckey Design has worked on commercial and residential projects within Europe, the United States of America as well as South America.
Based in London, a city of historical context with modern needs and demands, Jonathan Tuckey Design enthusiastically embraces an architecture of change, for example, by juxtaposing contemporary elements with original features of existing buildings to create exciting and dynamic new uses. Working with existing buildings is also gratifying to Jonathan Tuckey Design’s clients who share the studio’s fondness for materials, craftsmanship and proportion as well as the soulfulness and idiosyncrasies of historic architecture. For this reason, the practice set up Building on the Built, a programme of exhibitions and talks that explores unfamiliar architectural responses to existing structures.

From concept through to completion, varied experience allows the studio to approach projects across a range of sectors, with core competencies in residential and civic fields. The design team has also specialist experience in the challenges of working with listed buildings and within conservation areas.
